Jesus, Reconsidered. Book Sparks Evangelical Debate : NPR

Media_httpmedianprorg_cbida

I heard this story during this morning’s drive. I love how provocative Brian McLaren is and that his work has reached the level to make NPR headlines. The drama alone is interesting…largely in part because McLaren is definitively non-dramatic.

What he is, though, is a brilliant and prophetic voice of reason in an age where people of faith have grown complacent and lazy about what they believe and why they believe it.

Christianity, especially “American Christianity,” is long overdue for substantive, careful, and deliberate reform.

McLaren doesn’t have all the answers, but the questions he provokes are the right ones for all believers…an excellent topic as we solemnly approach the remembrance of Jesus’ death and more importantly, we jubilantly celebrate the resurrection.
